Quote of the Day:

They say there's a place down in Mexico
Where a man can fly over mountains and hills
And he don't need an airplane or some kind of engine
And he never will
Now you know it's a meaningless question
To ask if those stories are right
'Cause what matters most is the feeling
You get when you're hypnotized

Hypnotized, Fleetwood Mac (RIP Bob Welch, August 31, 1945 – June 7, 2012)

that's one of the reasons i never participated in mass hypnotism events; it turns out my concern wasn't totally unfounded and freaky deaky :3

I don't have a suspension of disbelief! I don't have fantasies about anything. I can let my mind concentrate on anything and not lose contact with reality. Therefore, I can't imagine myself doing anything that I'm not actually doing.

What do you think?

Red Pill,

Generally speaking, I don't really like entertainment. But, I can tell you how David Copperfield does some of his tricks. If you look-up Jasper Mascalin, the first person to make the Suez Canal disappear, on your search engine, you can learn how he hid the Suez Canal from the German Air Force during WWII.

What do you think?

Wait, what kind of magic trick are we talking about here? ;)

Maskelyne is certainly a fascinating character, despite the obvious self-aggrandizing schemes in his biographic accounts.

Maskelyne pioneered Black Lighting on a large scale which he virtually invented at the Suez Canal. He hid the entire Suez canal from the German Air Force for days. He used this technique in his Magic Act. The magic trick is hiding things that are in plain sight bt pointing bright lights at the audience. It makes your pupiles contract and prevents you from seeing past the light. The light is between the audience and the object that seemingly disappears.
Maskelyne did this with comparatively primative equippment. Copperfield should give Maskelyne more credit.

What do you think?

The ironic thing is that the extent of his success will probably remain forever classified.

They should make a movie about him, nonetheless.

In my opinion, it should be a major production!

The star child skull DNA information should be taken very seriously! But, unfortunately, it will probably be ignored or denounced by both religious leaders and/or political leaders.

What do you think?
